‘Hot Subject, Great Introduction’
I enjoyed this book. It’s short, it’s colour-printed on dodgy paper, it could use some better editing, but it does cover an awful lot of ground.
It goes into quite some detail on the current hot topic of mining asteroids. Why is it a hot topic now? It seems things are finally getting to the stage where significant progress can be made on some of the fundamental challenges of finding asteroids to mine, mining them, and doing something useful with what is mined.
Enough progress has been made that even small countries like Luxembourg are getting involved. This really does look like a fascinating area to watch, and maybe take part in.
The book didn’t answer every question I have about mining asteroids, but it certainly left me better equipped to find the answers.
